Series: You Asked For It
Text: Exodus 3-14
Preacher: Brent McCrory
God’s sovereignty: it is a mystery for some, a comfort for others, and the reason for unbelief in many (literally). Yet, and this will sound strange to even ask, what does the Bible say about it? In other words, what Biblical words are used for sovereign in the Bible?
The hardening of Pharaoh’s heart: once again it is a mystery for some, I do not think it brings many people comfort (although I could be wrong), and a lot of people struggle with a God who would do something like that. Yet once again, and again it may seem strange to even ask, what does the Bible actually say about it? After all, the text is clear in several places, God did “harden” Pharaoh’s heart (notice “harden”). Yet what else is happening in and around the exodus narrative? Are there some significant, though also overlooked issues do to so much focus being placed on the heart of a tyrant king?
Oh yes, and lastly, assumptions – we all have them. Yet be careful with your assumptions…because we all know what can happen with assumptions. Or maybe we should listen in and find out another answer to that familiar saying.
Oh and yes (again), this sermon comes straight outta a question box. In other words New Life, You Asked For It!
